It was a wonderful night in Iowa City. Fortunately for us the Dead came around Iowa often in the early 70's. A magical show followed on 5/13/73 in Des Moines at the fairgrounds. But this night the fieldhouse was packed. The band was on. I had taken the bus to Champaign and saw the show 2 nights earlier. These shows show why '73 is my favorite year. Yes hopeully some day the rest of the show is found. You never know. As the recent finding of a couple of shows in '69 and '70 shows, it can happen. GO HAWKS!!

Forget the El Paso fragment, but everything else here represents a mighty big tease - this is one of the most elusive of '73 shows out there. One day, hopefully, we'll see a full board emerge!

The Playin' is, yes, quite a creation.

Short recording, but sweet.
Reviewer: archivereen - - January 30, 2011
Subject: let's find the rest of this show!
my folks went to this show -- their first & only w/jer -- back when they lived in iowa. they said it was fantastic...& they've been looking for it ever since. has enough research been done to state definitively that there's no complete recording of this show?

Subject: great playin'
Fall '72 and Nov. '73 have some absolute beasts, but i'm starting to maybe think all the best playin's were really in February '73: 2/15, 2/22, and THIS!

speechless, yet again...

one of the very fine "playin" experiences..the truckin jam and "fault" are, well what the Dead are all about.download this.

Subject: All A+
Playin is very hot, the University of Illinois playin and Eugene are my 2 favorites of all time - This one melts the mouth and the hands check out Jer with the wawa around 18:00 right before he re-enters Earth orbit. Pity this is so short.
Reviewer: StrawRider - - January 4, 2005
Subject: Wow
Your'e right! After one listen, this is my favorite version of Playing in the Band that I have downloaded. Peak form, definitive performance. Wow indeed.
Reviewer: ivanw - - August 5, 2004
Subject: Quality Filler
This version of 'Playin' smokes and the sound quality is A+.

Use it for some tasty filler at the end of a short CD. Giddyup.
